Ads API Team

We are looking for a Backend engineer to work with mission critical systems accounting for around 150 million Euros in advertising revenue. Ad Engineering is a relatively new area in Media organisation which houses engineering teams for our back-office systems used by various sales organisations at Schibsted and the brandly new app for external users. These systems include Rose and AdMarket which are used to book advertising campaigns.

ADS API is a team consisting of 4 backend developers, all of us are located in the Kraków office. We are working in Agile/Kanban methodology. The team is responsible for the product from the technical point of view, it means that we are deciding votes in case of choosing libraries, architecture and solutions.

About you

  • You need to be well-versed in distributed systems based on microservices architecture.

  • Experience with AWS, Kinesis, AWS Lambda, Docker, Kubernetes, common Scala tools and libraries such as Http4s as well as Cats framework is a plus.
  • You will also be required to be comfortable with relational and nonrelational databases in general and Postgresql, DynamoDB in particular.

Have a chance to meet the Product or Engineering Manager you will be working with. During this step we'll focus mostly on soft topics - your work style, approach to software development and other.
